Adieu

Very soon on our way we will be, dear Heart

Leaving behind this wonderful place

A heaven on earth it is..

With its natural surroundings in the countryside

A blissful sublime world it is!

Nothing can be more captivating than this!

The rising sun bathes the earth

In its glorious orangish golden hue

Such exquisite beauty mesmerizes the beholder!

It’s a feast for the eyes to see & hear ..

Birds singing joyfully in varying cadence

Cheerfully hopping from branch to branch

Some sipping nectar from flowers

While some enjoying their perch

It’s amusing to watch them..

Playing catching, chasing each other

They look ever so fresh & cute!

The multihued butterflies merrily

Flit from flower to flower

Kissing & flying off

Their tender touch

Plants on them a kiss of life &..

The blushing blossoms tremble

Overjoyed by so loving a visitor!

On the slightest noise they scamper off with fright–

So stealthily you must observe

Kangaroos, Wallabies, Deer etc….

Frolicking with their prancing young ones

What a magnificent sight it is!

The mountains all dressed up in

Different shades of green, yellow, brown & even silver

The green turf..

Dotted with rainbow coloured flowers

The blue sky all perplexed wonders

Which dress it should adorn!

The one with white cottony balls

Strewn across the blue background

Or the one with grey geometrical fluffy design

Or just the plain dark coloured one

That has a thunderous reverberating call

With fiery streaks lighting up the sky?

The music of the heavy showers of rain

Pelting on the roof..

Send a thrill of joy & fear!

The accompanying strong winds..

Revel in their own melody joined by..

The chorus of the swaying branches &..

The soft rhythmical notes of the leaves

The birds & animals enjoying a day filled with singing & dancing..

Inspire humans to get out of their shell

And join in the merry making!

The Sun in the evening waves bye as..

Behind the mountains it sinks

Swathing the Earth in ruddiness

At dusk the trees seem to be on fire

An amazing sight it is with

Silhouette of trees lit up by the setting Sun

The western sky shrouded in a reddish shawl..

Soon gives way to the night Queen!

It enwraps the earth in a silvery soft sheet

In the darkness of the night

The shining silver ball proudly

Makes the surrounding more picturesque than ever!

In this divine haven

I basked for days & months together!

I may never again return to this

Heavenly paradise but

Will abide in it within my heart & soul undoubtedly!

A cosy home it has been with ..

Loving memorable fascinating moments of..

Beauty, warmth, love and care!

  1. Such a beautiful and detailed description of everything !!! People usually don’t admire and appreciate nature enough, they just have a quick look and leave, I guess that’s why they say “beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”… am sure this beautiful place as you described in your poem will miss it’s admirer !!

  3. the vivid description of God’s creations described so accurately fills the heart with gratefulness for the beautiful flora and fauna Man is surrounded with , however all that man does is destroy the natural gifts viciously instead of being thankful to God Almighty for blessing him with wondrous sights of nature in all its benevolence. thank you ms bannore for sharing this luxurious sight in poetic form.

  4. Very true. We, human beings don’t value anything that we get as a gift no matter how valuable it may be not in terms of money but beauty. Nature is a very precious treasure bestowed to us by the Creator.
